Hampton Head-On Collision Leaves One Dead, Two Injured
By Shapiro, Lewis, Appleton and Favaloro, Hampton Wrongful Death Attorney
When a minivan and a pickup truck collided head-on on Pembroke Avenue in Hampton, Virginia (VA), the mivan’s driver received fatal injuries, a passenger in the van was critically injured, and the truck’s driver also had to transported to a hospital for treatment of serious injuries. WAVY TV-10 has reported that police identified the deceased woman as Betty Fay Labaire but had not determined why the accident occurred.
A third vehicle was involved in the crash, but news reports did not contain information on whether the driver of that car sustained injuries.
As a car accident victim and wrongful death attorney practicing in Hampton, I know how much Labaire’s friends and family are hurting today, and also how long the two people injured in the wreck will take to recover. I also know that the insurance company holding the policy for the at-fault driver owes it to the victims to make quick and fair payments on claims for the costs of medical treatments, wages lost from having to miss work and accident-related pain and suffering. Whatever else occurs in the coming weeks, I hope insurers will not add to the injured and grieving people’s burdens.
